Reflecting on the week.... Not sure why policing is so obsessed with the outcome when identifying risk, ie risk of exploitation, slavery, suicide - the factors, such as trauma, which put people at heightened risk of one adverse outcome,may also put them at risk of another .thread I understand that policing must operate within laws when understanding the outcome, clearly, ie is this person a victim of a crime, so we understand the investigative skills needed but, to be honest if there is a crime is sometimes lost.

There are several points about this article I would make. Iโ€™ve thought about this post before making it but a counter narrative is needed to address what I feel is a misunderstanding & of the aim here. 1/15 To start, the pt that wherever the police are, there is a risk that if โ€œpolicingโ€ is not balanced informed, sensitive to context, trauma & procedurally just, we could create an increased likelihood of involvement with the CJ system, which may adversely effect outcomes 2/15

Now more than ever we need evidence based policies. For too long we have had policy based evidence. We need brave public sector organisations who are prepared to work together, this includes โ€œsharingโ€ data, in order to robustly evaluate what works to address in equalities 1/15 Too often we have evaluated a policy post itโ€™s implementation & often in the isolation of one agency. The police regularly do this. Often the output measured is crime, is it up or down, have there been more or less searches or non-incidents, whatโ€™s happening to police demand?2/15

Lots of media reporting on this, I recommend reading the actual report๐Ÿ‘‡Both sides of the coin:An inspection of how the police and National Crime Agency consider vulnerable people who are both victims and offenders in โ€˜county linesโ€™ drug offending -HMICFRS justiceinspectorates.gov.uk/hmicfrs/publicโ€ฆ โ€œit would be better to track all the various ways in which people can be vulnerable..rather than considering county lines separately...people can be vulnerable in many ways simultaneously..& can face many forms of exploitationโ€“ physical,emotional,financial or sexualโ€ @FLDMissing
